Plans for the Faculty of Education’s LEAP (Laurier Enriched Academic Program) Summer 2019 Enrichment Day Camps are we are looking for some great volunteers! This is a wonderful opportunity to continue gaining experience working with children in a fun atmosphere. All camps are held on the Wilfrid Laurier University Waterloo campus.
LEAP camps are geared towards gifted/ highly able students who are in Grades 1-9. Camps are designed and led by certified teachers and experts with the assistance of our volunteers. Our programming offers fun, challenging activities in an engaging environment, with topics including coding, robotics, art, inventing, biology, math and more!
We have been fortunate to have amazing volunteers for past camps including certified teachers, university and college students/ grads and high school students. We understand that our volunteers are busy and may not be able to commit to two weeks of full time volunteering, and we are always glad to work around our volunteers’ schedules. Many volunteers help out for half days or just a handful of days over the two weeks - whatever works for you!
LEAP CAMPS: July 8-12 & July 15-19
VOLUNTEER TIMES: Morning - 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Afternoon - 11:45 - 4:45 p.m. or Full day - 8:00 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. (with a one-hour lunch break)
Please see the attached an application form. Applications are due by June 11; however, we will continue accepting applications as long as we still need volunteers. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. The application form, camp descriptions and a camp registration package are posted on our website, www.wlu.ca/leap.
